Since he began writing articles for the Dillon Herald in 2003, Carley Wiggins has been telling the stories of Dillon County folks who made a difference but never made the headlines, such as James K. Braboy, the first Native American named Teacher of the Year in South Carolina, or Robert McRae, the area's last taxi driver. Come along with Wiggins as he investigates the ruins of a long-forgotten resort on Reedy Creek and tromps off into the woods in search of the mysterious Bingham Light. Whether or not you remember Dillon's short-lived semipro football team or ate at Hatch's Lunch, Remembering Dillon County is full of true stories from the Pee Dee region that will inspire and entertain you.
